The new Turning GPU architecture along with the new NVIDIA RTX platform is able to run up to 6X the performance of previous-generation GPUs and enables the power of real-time ray tracing along with powerful artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning enhanced graphics. The former version of the card weighs in at $799; a pretty steep price but not beyond the wallets of some PC gaming enthusiasts.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, announced during the presentation that the RTX 2070 will have a starting price of $499, RTX 2080 at $699, and RTX 2080 Ti at $999.

The GPU also includes a dedicated RT Core for ray tracing operations, with Nvidia promising a ray tracing capability of 10 gigarays per second; for comparison, a GTX 1080 Ti can manage about 1.21 Giga Rays per second according to Nvidia's calculations.

Nvida even says to more accurately judge the performance of new RTX cards, it had to create a new unit of measure called RTX OPS, which includes a combination of standard shader performance, floating point integer performance, ray tracing performance and AI performance. With 4,352 CUDA cores and 11GB of GDDR6 video memory with a speed of 14Gbps and bandwidth of 616 GB/s, the new graphics card has some serious pixel-pushing power. Metro Exodus will only be available next year, with its current release date set for 22 February 2019. In short, ray tracing technology is capable of more realistic global illumination and accurate projections of ambient light, and affords the ability to efficiently calculate the reflections and light sources that exist outside of the screen space.

"Turing is NVIDIA's most important innovation in computer graphics in more than a decade", said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA, in the release. Both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 2080 will ship on or around September 20th, with a limit of two per customer. Nvidia's G-Sync feature means titles running under the card will have tear-free gameplay, refresh rates of up to 240 Hz, HDR, and 4K.

We can assume that MSI will continue launching GeForce RTX cards from its other families in the coming months. Reflections, refractions and shadows also work as they would in real life, which adds to the feeling of realism.
